COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Hoppy with a properly balanced body. Generous hop additions give it wonderful bitterness & a pleasant floral nose. Our combination of traditional British malts creates a rich flavor & copper color. This authentic English style IPA is our flagship. 6.2% ABV

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - FEB 2, 2013
On tap at Pizzeria Toro, Durham. Nice to see some Green Man stuff every now and again, and a couple pints of this went down well. Nice lustrous orange pour, with a silky head. Soft English hops and substantial malts in the nose, definitely leaning strongly in the direction of leaf tea. Nice and smooth in the mouthfeel, not overly bitter on the palate. Not particularly full-flavored and aggressive in the way thatís standard for IPAs these days, so itís certainly a relatively toned down example of the style (despite the commerical description) and thatís no bad thing.

ben4321 (4260) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JAN 14, 2015
Location: 12 oz bottle from Bruisiní Ales, 1/14/15

Aroma: The nose is sweet and pale malts, some orange, floral hop notes, and a little biscuit
Appearance: Pours a clear orange color with a small ring of off-white head and medium lace
Flavor: The taste is sweetness and spice, with a strong malt presence and a good bitterness
Palate: The body is medium, has a light stickiness, a lively carbonation, and a dry finish
Overall Impression: I think the flavor declares more of a hoppiness than the nose would have suggested. At the same time, the hops donít quite hit a great flavor note. Throughout though, I found this to be a decent beer. Not the most drinkable beer, but a pretty nice beer none-the-less.

From a bottle. Pours hazy copper with a fizzy off white head. Tastes like dry grapefruit, musky citrus hops. Dry medium body and low carbonation. Smells like sweet bready malt and musky hops.

sonnycheeba (3864) - Federal Hill, Baltimore, Maryland, USA - JAN 2, 2015
Bottle. Pours mostly clear golden amber with creamy off-white head. Aroma is bready and cereal malts, faint toast, light woodiness, and faint spice. Flavor is dry and malty with less of a hop presence than what I expected; some grassy hop notes, but mostly just a toasted malt flavor. Medium body and carbonation.

llcooldave (1143) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - DEC 31, 2014
Pours honey amber in the glass. Tropical fruit nose with a hint of floral pine. Nice bitter citrus flavor with a touch of wheat crackers thrown in. Overall, a nice beer, a bit soft for an IPA but drinkable.

Panzuriel (1373) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - NOV 24, 2014
On tap at green man brewing in Asheville NC. Green man ipa is a medium amber liquid with a firm white head of small bubbles. Nose is fairly strong with cedar hops. Taste is medium dry with hops to the fore and good bitters on the back end. A nice ipa.

An average IPA. A medium amount of hops in both the aroma and body with a medium-dry finish as well. Just okay, nothing memorable.

Fritz123 (1145) - Boca Raton, Florida, USA - SEP 5, 2014
Bottle from Collin in Asheville...thanks! Pours a dark copper with a decent sized one-finger head. No real lacing. Aroma is a little muddled with a dank hoppiness, basement, hay, and mushroom. Taste is better than the aroma with a heavy malt backbone and then a bitter hop bomb on the back end. Malts, dank basement, leather, earth. Medium bodied, decent carb. Bitter hop finish. Not bad.

12oz bottle into a pint glass. Pours a hazy dark copper with just a thin white head. Decent lacing, however, and a thin off-white cap on top of the beer. Aroma is very earthy with plenty of hints of toast and caramel. Some pine and overripe orange as well. Pretty good. The flavor has more of the piney earthiness expected from an English IPA. Nothing tropical at all about this. Just the slightest hint of fruit but it is more of the overripe variety. Bitterness is moderate to high but not too excessive. Lingering bitterness in the finish with a slight sweetness. Overall, this is a good, albeit fairly run of the mill, English IPA. Nice earthiness from the hops but lacks a bit of the maltiness complexity found in other examples. All in all a good beer.
